until the baby's stump fall off and it gets dried well, it is better to wipe baby with a soft cloth dipped and wrung out in warm water. at night you can wipe baby with a good wet baby wipe...  after that, you can begin with bathing baby once a day, in morning after an oil massage... evening again wipe with wet wipes before going to bed... after 3 months, you can bathe baby morning and evening(evening without soap, only warm water) and night wipe before bed... in between, you can massage as many times you wish... this was my schedule... Some say daily bath for babies is not necessary as skin can dry out... a suitable soap and a good oil massage at least once a day is recommended...

My baby had her bath from day 1. And never missed any bath. Morning after 8 am you can Give baby oil massage and leave for half and hour to 1 hour. Later give baby a warm bath And apply baby moisturiser.. dry head Wel and breast feed baby. Don't wipe whole body too many times. As baby won't play in dirt or so. And also baby skin will be very sensitive. Instead you can change clothes as many times you want for that fresh feel. Afternoon once you can wipe..if the whether is too hot or baby is too sweaty. Some give baby evening bath and some at night as bedtime bath. Some babies will get running nose if given bath after sunset. So you have to check once to let yourself know.
You have to wipe baby head often with dry soft cotton towel as usually baby sweat while feeding. Wipe with moist cloth under neck and then with dry cloth. And as usual you have to wipe after peeing or potty. Apply coconut oil or any oil to bum, so that cleaning will be easy later on.

morning and evening...morn massage with coconut oil leave for sometime and bathe with warm water and evening sponge bath is enough though..and whenever baby poo or pee u can wipe out with wipes of cotton balls.
